Dash Arts Podcast

In the first episode of our four-part podcast series Breaking Silence, we examine Pacto del Olvido, Spain's 'pact of forgetting' - a collective decision to forget the thousands of crimes against humanity under Franco's 40-year dictatorship. Many of those who committed atrocities have still not been prosecuted and held to account, and Franco's victims continue to seek justice to this day.


Dash Arts' Artistic Director Josephine Burton speaks to filmmakers Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar about their multi-award-winning documentary The Silence of Others, Executive Produced by Pedro Almodóvar, which reveals the struggle of Spanish activists to organise a groundbreaking international lawsuit.


Speakers also include film director Manuel Huerga, whose film Salvador is based on the life and death of Salvador Puig Antich – the last person to be executed by garrote under Franco's regime; and author Aaron Shulman, whose book The Age of Disenchantments brings to life the regime's devastating impact through the eyes of one family and the works of poetry and art that they lived by.


Through conversations with a range of internationally-renowned speakers, Breaking Silence explores ways in which voices, stories and cultures have been silenced both in current times and recent history, when silence can be a positive force for change, and what role the arts can play in breaking silences.
